Tim Lincecum came into tonight’s start against the Reds on quite the roll, but he had some real issues with the mound at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. Watch as he stumbles while delivering a pitch in the bottom of the fourth inning:

This is pretty impressive, actually. Not only did Lincecum end up making a “pitch” to avoid a balk, but he managed to do it without hurting himself. That just looked uncomfortable.
Lincecum had his personal scoreless streak snapped at 18 innings tonight and was charged with three runs on five hits and five walks over 4 2/3 innings. His ERA now sits at 2.43 for the year.
